2012 Volvo S60 Long-Term Road Test

2012 Volvo S60 T5: Standing Out in VIP

November 07, 2011


This past weekend I was invited to this food event in Culver City. Unlike my other blogger friends, I lucked out by being given a VIP parking pass. Hee! This afforded me parking right behind the tents instead of in the depths of the underground garage. Score! Little did I know that the food event was sponsored by Volvo. First hint of this was the fact that when I got back to my car to leave the event, our long-term 2012 Volvo S60 T5 was surrounded by other Volvos. And no, they didn't give me the VIP pass because I happened to be driving a Volvo but funny how that worked out.

Even surrounded by its kin, ours still stands out. Times like this I really appreciate that orange color. And our S60 is so snazzy and non-boring. Anyway, the more I drive our Volvo the more I like it. Not only for its plush interior with technological conveniences but its power. Passing power FTW!

This weekend I drove long distances, like to a tea room 30 miles away in Sierra Madre, and then just in and around town, like to this food event. None of that weekend traffic annoyed me as much. Seat heaters, Sirius' 1st Wave and lotsa power made it all better.
